Biblioteca de Mariquitas (Ladybird Garden Library)

7 Stranks Ave, Brunswick West VIC

This little library is accessible from the street edge of El Gardin de las Mariquitas (The Garden of Ladybirds). It includes a small plant library area of succulent cuttings. Books are routinely given to charity if they do not find a new home. Come and enjoy the garden, too.

When Ali Kayn took over the garden in Brunswick West she included a variety of ladybirds and other figures, all hand-painted. The garden (El Jardin de las Mariquitas) includes masses of succulents and other plants. The little street library and a place for swapping cuttings and young potted plants were introduced as part of the community-sharing vision of the garden. Photos and messages
